Habitats where species collected were divided into 8 groups and habitat preferences and phenological properties of the species were discussed. Sample number of each species, number of localities where the species were collected and the number of habitat groups were determined and according to these data, rare, local, depending on a particular habitat and widespread species were tried to be designated.
